Moving Lilies now

Posted by jonjon 5 (My Page) on

Hi Everyone,

I'm moving in 3 weeks and plan to take my lilies with me. There are trumpets as well as asiatics and orientals. They are all in heavy bud now and should flower at the time I move.

It's not the best time to move them but I have no choice, what is the best way of moving them? I plan to cut off the flowers for indoors, then dig them up as best I can and plant them on the same day in my new garden. Should I heel them in a shady spot till the die down in the fall, then replant them in a sunny location, or just put them directly in their permanent spot? Thanks.

Just plant them in their parment spot but water well for a few days. If you can make a make-shift shade structure for a day or two, that will help the transition, too. Remember to dig and leave soil near the stem as to not disturb the feeder roots.
